The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need.

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.

Our local artists are the heart and soul of this community. That’s why Herald Publishing, which owns both River Towns Magazine and the Bucks County Herald, is so passionate about supporting local artists and helping to sustain a thriving arts community. It is that same passion that led to the creation of the Art of the River Towns Juried Show and Sale, co-chaired by Pearl and Chuck Mintzer, and the creation of this new online sales gallery. We didn’t want the postponement of the show until October, or what’s happening with our local economy generally to impede our efforts to generate sales for our artists.

In the coming weeks and months, this commitment will be translated into a significant level of marketing and promotional support for the online sales gallery—geared to promote sales of your work. All local artists are welcome to submit work. These are tough times for everyone, including our artists. For this reason, we are inviting all local artists, not just those whose work was selected by our jury for the Art of the River Towns Show, to submit work for sale on our Art of the River Towns Online Sales Gallery.
